SHARP SHADES -Doing the Double by Alan Durant

Doing the Double by Alan Durant, Pub. Evans Brothers Ltd, 2010.

This title is part of a series called Sharp Shapes written for boys who are struggling to read. They are high interest fiction with low vocabulary but are great stories.

Joe and Dale are twins and often pretend they are each other for a laugh and sometimes to help each other out. They are talented footballers but Joe has given the game away to play basketball.

Their father was a great footballer with a household name but after breaking a leg he hit the booze and ruined his career(shades of George Best).

When Dale starts going down the same path he asks Joe to stand in for him in an important game. Will anybody notice? and what are the ethics of doing this?

Read it and find out. Aimed at Intermediate to junior high school.
